It all waits to be discovered in Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children, an unforgettable novel that mixes fiction and photography in a thrilling reading experience. As our story opens, a horrific family tragedy sets sixteen-year-old Jacob journeying to a remote island off the coast of Wales, where he discovers the crumbling ruins of Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children. As Jacob explores its abandoned bedrooms and hallways, it becomes clear that the children were more than just peculiar. They may have been dangerous. They may have been quarantined on a deserted island for good reason. And somehow—impossible though it seems—they may still be alive.
A spine-tingling fantasy illustrated with haunting vintage photography,Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children will delight adults, teens, and anyone who relishes an adventure in the shadows.

Personal Opinion
This book was definitely not what I expected but in a good way. It was so full of surprises. The  fact I could read about someone or something and then turn the page and see a photo of it was incredibly cool for me. At first Riggs writing was a little bit hard to understand but after page120 the story became so compelling I finished in one day. This book is brilliant and to me, even a work of art (the book trailer is very cool too).
